Welcome to the Summer of Paper series – where we’ve invited fabulous guests to create projects using supplies from my Home + Made paper decor line.
Hello TT&J Friends, it’s Marie from Blooming Homestead here to share this super fun and easy DIY Memory Game. While I spend a lot of time creating home decor, diy crafts, and recipes, I also love to create fun activities to do with my two kiddos.
When I received my box of goodies from the Jen Hadfield Home + Made line I immediately fell in love with the patterns and knew exactly what I wanted to create. I love finding creative uses for beautiful paper patterns such as wreaths, banners, even book covers! This memory game is simple and beautiful, how about I show you how to make your own?
- Scrapbook Paper
- Scrapbook tape & dispenser
- scissors or craft cutter
To start you’ll cut your paper shapes. You can cut any shape you choose using scissors, or a craft cutter if you have one. These flowers are 2.5″ inches in diameter. You’ll be cutting 2 flowers per page of scrapbook paper to create the matches.
Next you’ll select the scrapbook paper for your backing. I chose this grey floral print that is just so pretty. You’ll cut out enough pieces to cover the backside of your matches. (I made 24 game pieces)
When you have all your front and back pieces cut you can start assembling. You’ll start by setting your backing piece right side down and applying scrapbook adhesive.
Now you can add the top piece and press down to secure. Be sure to line up your flowers.
Finish assembling the remaining flowers and you’re all set!
Such a fun and simple game that makes a perfect boredom buster.
Thanks Marie! Such a fun project, and really, it’s so easy to make too! I love it! Marie has great ideas on her blog, here are a few I know you’ll love:
